America’s President Donald Trump clearly isn’t having enough fun as Commander In Chief of a mere five branches of the armed forces – today he instructed the Pentagon to start work on a sixth.
The Space Force
His directive – to “immediately begin the process necessary to establish a Space Force as the sixth branch of the armed forces” – is no real surprise. He’s mentioned this before.
Not satisfied with keeping us on the edge of our seats thanks to his on-again-off-again relationship with North Korea, and our constant fears of an impending nuclear war – he’s pushing the boat out, and created a force dedicated solely to war in space.
Because he’s clearly excited about the idea of having the very first one.
Some critics worry the move will provoke a cold-war-style space-arms-race. James Mattis, Trump’s defence secretary, argues a space force would present too narrow an approach to operations beyond the Earth’s atmosphere.
But to all of the naysayers – I say maybe this is a good idea.
Hear me out.
Given how much Trump loves keeping his family centre stage, you can bet your bottom dollar he’ll be placing at least one of them in command.
Play your cards right, and we could see the entire family take to the stars – in what would seem like a remake of Star Trek and Dynasty combined.
And that would be brilliant news.
After all – it might be the only way we’re able to get them all of us here on Planet Earth alone…!
